Buhari Extends Perm Sec’s Tenure Again

President Muhammadu Buhari has extended the tenure of the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Dr. Jamila Shu’ara, for another one year, the Minister of Education, Mr. Adamu Adamu, has stated.

This will make it the second of such an extension for Shu’ara, whose tenure expired in February 2016, when she turned 60 years.

She got a presidential extension to remain in service up to February 2017.

At the expiration of the extension of service, which has been causing ripples in the Federal Civil Service, Shu’ara got a second extension, according to the minister.

This came while the House of Representatives Committee on Basic Education was investigating Shu’ara over how she remained in service, despite having attained the mandatory 60 years age of retirement in 2016.

The committee, chaired by a member of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Zakari Mohammed, had two weeks ago, demanded evidence of the presidential approval for the extension of service from Shu’ara.

However, the permanent secretary kept away from the committee.

While the committee was awaiting the evidence of the presidential approval, the minister wrote the lawmakers to say that Buhari had granted her a second extension of one year.
